T ag: you are it!

I like to make tags out of left over papers from the KnK club. kits. These are two I made using the PDQ papers, some stamps and ribbons. I use these like cards or as an embellishment on a layout. The little girl stamp is one of my favorites and I got her at Owl and the Pussycat in Ft. Myers, Florida. Thanks for looking!

I have finally decided on what to use my 7 Gypsy book covers and papers that I was putting together at the knk Sock Hop Crop. After my grandfather died in 1954, my grandmother and two of her friends boarded the Queen Elizabeth ocean liner and toured Europe for several weeks. I have very few pictures from this adventure but what I do have is her travel journal. I am thinking I'll scan her entries, use what few pictures I have and supplement with vintage post cards of the places she visited. Her journal is tattered and falling apart. I may even add journal pages of my own of when I was in Europe some 30 years after her visit as our impressions are similar. I hope to get started on this this week. Will keep you posted on how it is going.
